3.0 out of 5 stars A Rough Guide not quite up to usual standard, 3 Sept. 2003
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Rough Guide to Cuba (Rough Guide Travel Guides) (Paperback)
This guide book is not as reliable as others in this normally excellent series. It tends to over-rate some of the sights - such as the comically old-fashioned Camilo-Che room in the Museum of the Revolution, and the restaurant recommendations are often wayward. The text often contradicts itself, and among the unmissable recommendations at the beginning of the book there are sights which are hardly remarkable.
This being said it is the most thorough guide book for Cuba, and is awash with listings.

Geoff Parkes says:
I agree with some of what you say, though I found the Museum of the Revolution (if you mean the one in Trinidad) highly interesting. However, the Rough Guide, though indeed thorough, certainly isn't "the most thorough guide book for Cuba" and hasn't been for at least 12 years. That honour belongs to the Moon Guide, first published in 1997 and now on its 3rd edition (2006), which has averaged just under 1000 pages per edition.
